PDF | 4 pages|Grades: 3 - 5

Task cards that help students use their knowledge and ideas to help them decode ideas in texts

This teaching resource supplies sixteen different written scenarios on task cards that prompt students to think about how they infer when they read. Inferences are not always deliberate and is great for students to identify and understand what skills they can use when comprehending texts. You can use these task cards as an individual activity in your reading rotation or as a rich discussion between groups or peers.
